September 8, 2018

Another professor was abducted from Larkana city of Sindh on Friday.

According to details received by The Balochistan Post, A professor of Elementary college Larkana city of Sindh province, Sahbbir Kalhoro was arrested and moved to an undisclosed location allegedly by personnel of security forces on Friday.

Shabbir Kalhoro is also a central Committee member of Jiye Sindh Qaomi Mahaz (JSQM) Arisar, a nationalist political party in Sindh province of Pakistan. ‘He was abducted by Pakistani forces and intelligence agencies last night from his house located in Sheikh Zaid colony in Larkana city,’ local sources said.

Last month in a similar incident, a professor had gone missing from Sindh after he was arrested by forces from Sindh University Larkana.

The disappeared Professor Essa Memon is a professor at Sindh University Larkana and an author of six books. He is also politically affiliated with a political party called Sindh United Party.

Voice for Missing Persons of Sindh, a group campaigning to secure release of missing Sindhi activists claims that hundreds of people including many prominent Sindhi nationalist leaders and workers have been abducted by Law Enforcement Agencies from different areas of Sindh in the last few years. Many of those missing have later been found as dead bodies dumped on roadsides.

The term ‘missing persons’ is also widely used in Balochistan to connote arrests made by security forces as the arrested are not presented before a court of law but are instead kept in military camps.

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), a campaign group formed by families of victims, more than 20,000 Baloch men, women and children are under Pakistani custody.
